Food Access Resiliency Enterprise (FARE) began in 2017 with support from Montgomery County and the United Way to improve food security in inner East Dayton. The goal is to increase affordability, quality, and nutritional value of food available to East Dayton families, and to enhance residents' knowledge of how to grow and prepare healthy foods.

Our FARE programs include the Backyard Garden Program which, with our partner, Mission of Mary Cooperative, we have installed over 65 raised-bed gardens in income-eligible neighbors' backyards, and plan to install more next season. We provide soil, plants, seeds and mentorship-everything you need to be successful in growing your own vegetables. We offer adult workshops on gardening, food preservation, cooking and sustainability throughout the year for members and any lifelong learners.

We also manage 20 community garden raised-bed plots located at Lincoln Hill Gardens, a community greenspace that also features a fruit orchard, children's nature play and Mission of Mary Cooperative's hoop-houses. FARE hosts With God's Grace Mobile Food Pantry at East End Community Services the 4th Monday of the month from 6:00-7:30pm and a weekly fresh foods distribution at Ruskin Elementary weekly when school is in session. FARE teaches weekly nutrition and gardening classes at East End's Youth Champions, Miracle Makers at Ruskin Elementary and Architects for Justice at Wright Brothers' Middle School. You can find our Youth Champion teens serving healthy food once a month around East Dayton at a Pop-Up Community Caf stand or our K-6th grade gardening entrepreneurs selling as the Ruskin Ram Garden Stand at 2nd Street Market during the holidays.
